Não consegui entrar
Boa noite. Tentei ligar para o George Backpackers desde as 15hrs e não tive retorno, apara avisar do meu horário de chegada. Chegando no estabelecimento as 18hrs não havia ninguém para me recepcionar. Fiquei por 2hrs aguardando e nada. Tentei telefonar novamente e ninguém atendeu ao telefone. Estou em George e tive que dormir na hospedagen aberta que achei por 850 rands que esta muito acima do meu orçamento,  mas não podia ficar na rua pois já eram 20hrs e esta ficando perigoso.  Peço o favor de devolver meu dinheiro e realmente não poderia arcar com o gasto de 850 rands não previstos no meio de minha viagem. Fico no aguardo de uma solução. Obrigada.
